The previous ones have all missed us. This one looks like it may well be a direct hit. Running was not really an option. Everything w have is here. If we received damage to the house local looters would grab any thing of value. We can evacuate to my cousins big brick home just behind us if necessary. Since Nancy can't walk that could be a chore. It will be okay whatever it is. Vehicles and generators are gassed up. Certainly we will be without power for a while. Tornadoes are an even bigger threat than the straight line winds. This site may well be down for a few days. Pray for us and those of our community.

“I’m really proud of this team, we’ve been really strong this year, especially lately, with a handful of Quick Times and consistently in the top five.

When the FAST 410 Championship Series embarks on it's 11th season in 2019 it will do so under new ownership. Aaron Fry, who created the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) in 2011, has assumed ownership of the FAST organization. FAST began in 2009 under Bryan Autullo, Scott Porter and Chris Kettman, sprint car fans who wanted to bring more recognition and funds to the teams that raced weekly at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway – thus the FAST acronym stood for Fremont Attica Sprint Title. Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer took over the FAST series in 2014 and expanded it to include a few other tracks and changed the name to simply FAST Championship Series.

Major League Baseball attendance dropped 4 per cent this year, continuing a steady decline for “America’s Pastime.” It’s the lowest league-wide attendance since 2003 and the largest single-season drop in a decade. What does that mean for a team’s bottom line? Bloomberg News crunched some numbers to get a better understanding. While some clubs saw a jump in attendance, 17 of the 30 franchises sold fewer tickets than they did last year. Using average ticket prices from Team Marketing Report, that comes to about US$93.7 million in lost ticket revenue in 2018. Teams with the largest drops include the Miami Marlins (down US$24.5 million) and the Toronto Blue Jays (down US$22.9 million). (The Marlins recently changed the way they report attendance, which could account for part of the decline.) The defending-champion Houston Astros were a big winner, with a projected US$23.2 million boost in sales.

Gas City I-69 Speedway IN: Today many grassroots movements spread on social media. One Facebook page, @Hazen4HOF, promotes the induction of veteran sprint car owner Paul Hazen into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa. The suggestion certainly has merit, because Hazen is legendary in sprint car racing in the Midwest. That includes Gas City I-69 Speedway, where the 80-year-old car owner from Columbia City, Ind., won the recently concluded 2018 non-wing sprint car owner championship with his 22-year-old driver champion, Clinton Boyles of Greenwood, Mo.

President Trump says he rejected a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; insight from White House trade adviser Peter Navarro. The United States and Canada confirmed Sunday they had reached a deal on a 'new, modernized trade agreement,' which is designed to replace the 1994 NAFTA pact. In a joint statement the two nations said the new deal would be called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said following a cabinet meeting, 'It's a good day for Canada.' Trudeau plans to address the media on the deal on Monday. President Trump tweeted about the deal on Monday morning, calling it a 'great deal for all three countries' and that it will open markets to farmers and manufacturers.
